Directions
    Heat Pan to medium high heat, and add 1 Tbsp of vegetable oil. Saute shrimp until opaque, approx 2-4 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside. We used shrimp for our meal, but you can substitute with cooked chicken, tofu or your favorite protein!
    In a food processor, pulse scallions, garlic, chilies, ginger, green peppercorns, turmeric, 2 cups cilantro, 1/3 cup mint and 2 Tbsp water until blended and coarsely ground. With motor running, stream in coconut oil and process until mixture is smooth.
    Heat a medium sized on medium, and scrape the paste in. Cook until slightly darkened in colour and fragrant, stirring occasionally. This should be about 5 minutes.
    Add coconut milk, lime juice and 3 cups of water, and bring the mixture to a boil. Add lemongrass.
    Reduce heat and simmer until reduced by half, about 25-30 minutes
    Stir in Snow Peas and cook for approx 5 minutes, then add Kale. Cook until wilted and tender, about 2 minutes. Stir in brown sugar and season curry with salt.
    Spoon a nest of butternut squash spirals in the middle of a bowl, and add the curry while still warm. Top with shrimp.
    Garnish with mint, cilantro and lime wedges, and enjoy!
